Galaxy S III Jelly Bean

Does anyone know when ours is coming? Sprint got theirs in October, and T-Mobile is pushing out the update today... I don't understand why it's taking AT&T so long

Not sure how to interpret your question but by now, I think that you've updated to JB, huh? Smiley Wink

Re: Galaxy S III Jelly Bean

I had a problem with my (older) version of Keis. The update and patch of Keis took forever, then i reconnected my device and all was well. The drivers were automatically updated for the device as part of the Keis update. Everything went well and 4.1.1 is rockin now! Thanks ATT for (finally) pushing the update

Glad you're up & running! However, you made one major 'guffaw' (if you wil!). AT&T had absolutely nothing to do with this update. It was pushed out by Samsung & AT&T didn''t have a clue that it had been released!

I wonder if this was the result of Samsung getting fed up with AT&T delaying the update?

Re: Galaxy S III Jelly Bean

I took the advice above and updated via XP with no problems. I will say, wifi range (and wifi direct) are a lot better now and it's nice to get driving mode in notifications too. Well done Samsung. Not so much ATT. I just wonder how many users will never upgrade because they won't know about it...

Re: So where the heck is Jellybean??

This update was pushed thru by Samsung, at&t is trying to claim they had a part in it the reality is such. as noted on the internet this morning Samsung decided that too many people were running older versions of android and this after directly contacting the carriers. so globally they are pushing updates thru Kies! at&t still working on thier update "comming soon" you will notice a lot of bloat isnt working and or not updated!

Re: Galaxy S III Jelly Bean

I ended up having to install mine on a desktop PC. You could try that? Or call Samsung and get help from them.

Re: Galaxy S III Jelly Bean

Just noticed that 4.1.1 removed the Mobile Data button on the top of the global swipe-down menu and replaced it with Driving Mode. What the heck is that even for? Now I'm stuck with Mobile Data turned off forever!

@Ark42 - If you go into Settings and under "Wireless and network" click "More Settings" then click "mobile networks" then check the top box. Click my thumbs up if it helps please

Re: Galaxy S III Jelly Bean

Yeah, that seems to work, but really? 1 button I use ALL THE TIME is replaced with *five* steps? Why?

Glad yours is working for you. But mine broke the LTE data speeds. My LTE-equipped GS3 is nothing faster than a old 3G phone now.

 

Thanks, Samsung. Really appreciate turning my LTE GS3 into a 3 year old phone.

Re: Galaxy S III Jelly Bean

So after working out bugs with kies i was able to update to 4.1.1 but now after its done Google Maps no longer works and crashes if i try to open it.  Any suggestions?  Really don't want to have to wipe this again.

AS randun pointed out this had nothing to do with at&t! hence the 3 threads on it before a mod cam ein and said hay new update!

 

They had no clue Samsung will probably shove out 4.1.2 also seeing as at&t blocked the nfc share tag many features on this phone have been nerfed!

 

after this update you will notice that a few bloatware apps has vanished ! that should be a clue as to what at&t didnt know about this push.

 

My wife tests a lot of phones "cant tell you who she works for" but samsung and htc are getting fed up with the way carriers are disabling KEY features of their devices!

 

4.1.2 Would reenable the nfc share option in your gallery!

and data toggle!
